ceiling spending and the gun control debate. >> that's where we begin our first pole this morning. when asked if you think the tough gun control laws will prevent acts like the noun shooting 41 percent say no people will still try to commit the acts. 22 percent said yes. we asked about finances. those polled say income taxes will likely go up this year 11 percent more than the number who believe gun laws will change. 48 percent say they expect changes through immigration reform this year. 21 percent believe the deficit will get smaller. >> when it comes to the deficit in spending 83 percent were told they believe government spending is out of control that's up from 78 percent back in february 2010 and the next economic debate is whether to raise that debt ceiling. 69 percent of you said it should only be raised after major cuts are made where 23 percent say it would be reckless not to. it is coming up. >>> powerful wind gusts tearing through the midwest knocking down this frtree and causing ito fall into the house in ohio. luckily the people inside the home were in the basement so they
